[audio]An Ugly Effect Of Fossil Fuels - Acid Rain
The burning of fossil fuels pollute the environment in many ways, including contributing to the greenhouse effect and producing harmful by-products that are dangerous to our health. One of these side effects, which causes the majority of the damage to the ecosystem, is acid rain.

[audio]An Ugly Effect of Fossil Fuels - Acid Rain
Fossil fuels-oil, coal, and natural gas-are running out quickly, and since much of the world's power depends on these resources, in the next few hundred years this could be a major problem. However, if we aren't more careful about the way we use these natural resources, we won't have to worry about that; the world won't survive that long. The burning of fossil fuels pollute the environment in many ways, including contributing to the greenhouse effect and producing harmful by-products that are da...

[texts]Agriculture and Energy
The articles in this section describe much of what is wrong with present agricultural and energy practices. They are intended to be read as critiques, and indeed they are, but not to be interpreted as endpoints in our thinking. We have tried, at New Alchemy, to shift our intellectual paradigm until these problems no longer loom as insuperable, but rather become a touchstone for biological approaches to agriculture and energy.

[texts]Biofuel and Genocide - Alexis Zeigler
The biofuels movement is propelled by the powerful myth of progress; the myth that with the right technology, the right machines, the right fuel, we can go on living as we currently live. The myth of progress represents horrible misunderstanding of our past, and it equally misunderstand the future. Rather than leading to an age of renewable fuel, the biofuel movement is more likely to be the seed of a global scale genocide.

[audio]The Two Degrees Show: Phasing Out Coal - Climate Radio www.climateradio.co.uk
Leading US climate scientist and director of NASA, Dr James Hansen, has made it clear that "preservation of climate requires that most remaining fossil fuel carbon is never emitted to the atmosphere" and that "the only realistic way to sharply curtail CO2 emissions is to phase out coal use except where CO2 is captured and sequestered." Over the last six months Hansen has taken the unusual step of writing in a personal capacity to various heads of states asking them to bring in a moratorium on ne...
